I've had those spacers on for awhile now.. the pic in the sig is the first since then. They are great and worth the money, nice purchase! I do notice a difference in the ride since the install.

Lateral movement is less in the rear, cornering the rear feels more solid and not as much roll. There is a small amount of 'firmer planting' that the car has, the difference is noticable but its not something that just makes the car completely different, don't think its that big of a 'feeling' in the difference.

hehe....

I HATE telling people what kind of car i have, because there automatically like, oh, your one of THEM! Im always just like hello no, you have no clue what your talking about!

Guys, check out OPTIONS AUTO SALON, just google it! They have AWESOME deals on H & R spacers! Cheaper then EBAY!

Its VERY imporant that you put on a quality wheel spacer. So many things can go wrong with cheap, non hubcentric, spacers.

As far as feel, so far, i dont notice much. This was totally all about the look :) And man, it looks SO much better!

Did you have to roll your fenders? If so, what method did you use? Also, did you replace your studs? If so, how about a quick how-to? I bought the 15mm version and need to put them on when my new wheels get in.

i think i already know the answer to this, but did they include front and rear or only rears? also is it possible to put on front? and also is there any place that sell them any wider?

the 25MM spacers have studs built in so that u dont have to extend the stock studs

maybe a little off topic, but don't you have to accomodate for wheel offset as well when choosing the proper width spacers? for instance, if u have a large negative offset, wldn't you need less of a spacer? sean, what offset are u running?

i was wondering the same thing actually.

Yes you do

I believe my wheels are -42mm offset.

As long as you have the wheels, put them on the car, and then measure the gap between the wheels, and fender flare, and buy the correct spacer.

They extend the wheels out more, hence "wheel spacers." I guess the best way to say it is that they push out the wheels more so that there is less of a "pushed in" effect of the wheels if you have a large offset. I can't remember what the stock offset is on 5th and 6th gens, but I do know that if you get a 35mm offset wheel then they will be damn near flushed with the fenders. Hope that helps.

I'm surprised that your spacers came with stud extensions (if I read that right). That's odd to me.

all the 25MM H&Rs come with the extra studs built in
